Renewing your LogicalDOC software is entirely optional, but it will ensure your continued access to the following benefits:
You'll continue to receive LogicalDOC's support for another 12 months. LogicalDOC's support is available to you via our online ticketing system or through support email.
Our products continue to evolve via frequent and significant updates. If you're after new features, ever improving usability and the latest innovations in issue tracking, active software maintenance ensures you continue to receive all the latest software updates for another 12 months.
Peace of mind
If your team depends on our products for many of its day to day activities, having a guaranteed direct line of contact to a committed support team offers great peace of mind.
Start of Maintenance
New license: Your 12 month software maintenance period will commence from the last date of the month in which you placed the order(eg. if you purchase on March 10th 20XX, your support will cover until March 31th 20XX)
Software maintenance renewal: Your 12 month software maintenance will commence from the expiration date of the previous maintenance period.
End of Maintenance
After the first 12 months, your software maintenance will expire and you will no longer be able to receive technical support or software updates. Renewing your software maintenance is done purely at your discretion and can be renewed in advance of your maintenance expiration to ensure uninterrupted access to the support and software updates.
As all licenses are perpetual, you can use your software into perpetuity. This means, the product will continue to operate the same way as it does before and after the maintenance period expires.
Please note: maintenance renewals commence from the date the previous maintenance period expires.
Renewal of Maintenance
If you want to renew the maintenance for your LogicalDOC software, you will be required to pay the 22% of the price of your license(that also includes optional features, components and customizations) at the time of renewal. In any case a minimum renewal price is applied and it depends on the product you have.
The maintenance renewal must be purchased before the expiration of the current support period.
The software itself will warn you about the support expiration 30 days before the expiration date.
Credits for Maintenance Renewal
If during the last support period you upgraded your license by purchasing new features or additional components, no credits will be recognized at the moment to renew the support.
So you will always pay the 22% of the license price(including optional features, components and customizations) at the time of renewal (or the minimum renewal price when it applies).
Reconnection of an expired maintenance contract
It is possible to reconnect an expired installation for another 12 months by paying the following two items:
- The normal maintenance renewal as already described above
- A reconnection fee calculated dividing by twelve the normal maintenance renewal and then multiplying this value for each month passed since the support expiration date
Causes of unilateral support interruption
Downgrades are not admitted. In particular we do not admit the following downgrades:
- Reduction of the maximum number of users
- Conversion of regular users into read-only users
- Conversion of read-only users to regular users
- Reduction of the maximum storage
